Tomatoes Baked w/ Olives & Goat Cheese

It is tomato season.  I have more tomatoes than I know what to do with.  This little thing was quickly whipped up and so delicious!  Three ingredients, two of which are easy to keep on hand, are all you need for a classy, unexpected side or appetizer.  I used gigantic tomatoes, but you could easily use smaller ones for fancy little hor d'oeuvers.  Firmer, fleshier tomatoes are best, but use whatever you have.

Tomatoes w/ Olives and Goat Cheese
1 lrg tomato
2 Tbsp chopped mixed olives (I had a Greek blend)
1 oz goat cheese

   Slice off the top 1/4 of the tomato.  Remove as much pulp as possible.  Turn upside down on a paper towel to drain for a few minutes.
   Stuff the tomato with olives.  Top with goat cheese.
   Broil, low, for 6-8 minutes about 8 inches from broiler (large ones).  When tomato (of any size) is warm, but not mushy, and goat cheese is starting to brown they are done.
   Serves 1.  (Obviously its a dish easy to multiply.)
